The leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should consider using a northern politician as the flag bearer of the opposition party ahead of the upcoming presidential election. The opposition party needs to take back the lost mantle of leadership at the Aso Rock Villa in the year 2023 presidential election, and a northern politician will be beneficial to the progress of the party more than any politician from another region in Nigeria.

The top members of the party have recently zoned the chairmanship position of the party to the northern part of the country. According to the zoning system of the party, the next presidential candidate of the party should come from the southern part of the country. The leaders of the party need to think outside when electing those politicians that will be representing the interest of the party in the upcoming presidential election. The zoning system is good because it provides equal representation across the country for the members of the party.

If the party uses the normal zoning system to determine the region that will produce the next presidential candidate of the party, it will affect the performance of the party in the forthcoming presidential election. Most of the votes that are produced in Nigeria during a national election usually come from the northern part of the country. The All Progressive Congress (APC) has already outsmarted the opposition party in terms of popularity in the northern part of the country. The only thing that can change the mindset of the northerners is to vote for their kind in the election.

The leaders have to reconsider the zoning system once again by giving the northerners the opportunity to produce the next presidential candidate of the party. The ruling party members have projected Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to be the flag bearer of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the opposition party should not make a mistake or picking its flag bearer from the southern part of the country.
